Geneva Motor Show 2018: 2019 Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo revealed

Porsche

The original Mission E concept was revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. This time, however, there will be no waiting to get behind the wheel, because as early as 2019, the production version of the current-carrying, nearly five-meter-long cross-utility vehicle should be on the road, which could be risky for USA electric auto giant Tesla.

The Cross Turismo has around 600 HP of power from its motors, and can get up to over 120 miles per hour in under 12 seconds. The Mission E Cross Turismo rolls on 20-inch wheel shod with 274/40 R20 tires.

Porsche's new 800-volt electric circuit can charge the auto in just 15 minutes via a compatible charging point and equates to a driving range of 400km when full.

While details have yet to be revealed, the powertrain is be shared with Porsche's first Mission E concept, which used two electric motors - one on each axle - to produce a combined 600hp and 900Nm, drawing their power from lithium ion batteries mounted in the floor. The crossover can be charged inductively.

There's also an air-channelling roof spoiler, and continuous light strip at the rear - both now established Porsche design cues. Like Jaguar, with the I-Pace, Porsche aims the Mission E Cross Turismo at the Tesla Model X P100D. He also said the German vehicle would be able to maintain top speed driving - particularly important on autobahns - without degradation of range that plagues cars like Tesla.

One non-performance related feature which caught our attention is the "eye-tracking control" on the driver's dash.

No production dates or prices for the Mission E Cross Turismo have been announced as yet. Edges are finished in Nordic Blue and the seats feature illuminated Porsche lettering.

Adjustable straps in the cargo area can secure gear and create two load levels.

As well as extra boot space, the Mission E Cross Turismo will exhibit enhanced off-road capabilities thanks to a higher ride height and tougher wheel arch surrounds.

The maker of the 911 sports auto would join a raft of companies working on designs for flying cars in anticipation of a shift in the transport market towards self-driving vehicles and on-demand digital mobility services.

Everything in the cabin has been created to be flexible enabling everyday practicality or, in the words of Porsche: "Modern load-carrying systems facilitate the transport of surfboards or a Porsche e-bike".
